    there are many good reason not to participate.... and the only relevant judge of those reasons is the individual themselves. " I don't want to" is a perfectly valid reason... so is " I'm too lazy to get up"... or " I ****ing hate everyone in the race"... or " My hemorrhoids are flaring up today"
    you might find all reasons to be bad, and that's fine too.. but your judgement only matters to you.


    in any event, not voting doesn't strip anyone of free speech rights.... anyone can bitch about whatever they want, when they want, for as long as they want.

    Depends on the locale. Some write-ins have to be accepted write-ins meaning even those write-ins have to be pre-approved by the elections office to keep people from having to count "Mickey Mouse" write ins.

    You're right, it's not hypocritical to criticize the government and we all have little power to change it. The hypocrisy is to not try.

    It doesn't strip them of their free speech rights, they just lose their moral authority

    even if they agree on a problem, the solutions will vary wildly.... that's a pesky fact some like to ignore.

    Your quote should more accurately read "Bernie Sanders agrees with 80% of republicans when it comes to government influence and money spent on political campaigns.
